My confusion lies in that the compound NaCl is a completely different substance with completely different properties from sodium and chloride ions. My understanding is also that NaCl ionizes into sodium and chloride ions when in water. So why does the property of salty taste not change when sodium chloride is dissolved and ionized in water to sodium and chloride ions? Thanks
Re: Salt ionizes in water so why does salt water taste salty?
